Workshop: Accessing census aggregate and flow data

4 September 2015
University College London

This free one-day workshop will focus on both the aggregate and flow outputs from recent censuses.

Aggregate data provide area counts, usually of individuals or households with particular characteristics. Flow data are a type of aggregate data which are used to track movements between two geographies; home and work, origin and destination, or first and second residence.

This workshop will include:

  • an introduction concerning the census and the outputs available through UK Data Service Census Support
  • overview of the Census, and specifically aggregate and flow data
  • demonstration of both the InFuse and WICID interfaces
  • hands-on exercises using InFuse and WICID interfaces
  • opportunity to use our older interface, Casweb, which provides access to data from the 1971, 1981,1991 and 2001 censuses
  • opportunities for participants to ask the presenters questions about their own use of census aggregate and flow data

Timings: 10am – 4pm
